    Just curious; what do you all think of the name Amaryllis? It wouldn’t work with our LN so I couldn’t use it, but I’d love to see it used. What do you all think of it? Pretty? Too frilly?

    I just think of the flower – Mary for a nn??
    Not my favorite

    Definitely too frilly and too much of a flower to be a name for me. Still has a pretty sound, though, and I would be intrigued to meet a little Amaryllis. I don’t really like Mary as a nn, but it would work. I like the idea of Amy, Mia, Rilla, Rilly, Lissy, Issy, etc. as nns, though. It might make a cool mn, though? Something like Grace Amaryllis?

    Very frilly and flowery to me. Intriguing though especially with all the nn options.

    I do think it has a lot of nn options.
    I think of the flower with lily, rose, violet, etc., so to me that wouldn’t hold me back on its own. Like I said, I couldn’t use it b/c of our LN but I was curious how it strikes others.

    Personally, I love it. But I do like most flower names, and I love Mary as a nickname.

    I love it! I also would like people to get more adventurous with names…and this is how folks should do it, in my opinion. There are so many lovely names out there that are very underused.

    I don’t really think of this as too frilly, either. I think its more ‘spunky’. There are a variety of nicknames and short options, too: Mary, Mare, Ama or Ammie, Ari, Allie, Lyssa, Lissy, Allis…

    I love that it has some other fans, too. :) And Anabel, I agree it has a lot of great nn options!
